ELK GROVE HS (SJ) 2016 CIF SAC-JOAQUIN SECTION DIV. I DUAL MEET CHAMPIONS

TCW Team-of-the-Week – ELK GROVE HIGH SCHOOL (SJ)
The last time the Thundering Herd won a Sac-Joaquin Section Division I Dual-Meet Championship was in 2009. On Saturday at Lincoln High, Elk Grove entered the event as the number one seed with a 23-1 dual meet record for the season. Their lone loss was a 31-13 decision at the hands of North Coast Section powerhouse De La Salle of Concord. Elk Grove began the event with a 73-3 win over Gregori from Modesto, followed by a 67-6 win in the semifinals over Lodi to meet up with Del Oro High, who knocked out 19-time champions, Vacaville 28-27. Tied 24-24 with only one match left, Coach Pat Coffing sent his #8 TCW ranked wrestler, Jacob Seto on the mat in hopes of securing the victory. Seto didn’t disappoint Coach Coffing, as he pinned his opponent in the second period to give Elk Grove a 30-24 win. This marks Elk Grove’s third overall Sac-Joaquin Dual-Meet Championship.
Congratulations to Coach Pat Coffing and the Thundering Herd on being chosen this week’s TCW Team-of-the-Week.

Over the weekend, Canyon High senior, Aleeah Gould, won her second CIF-Southern Section Regional Qualifier with three falls on the day to improve to 25-0 in the season. This makes the third consecutive year that she has been in the finals of the Regional Qualifier Tournament. In 2014, she lost a heartbreaking 4-3-decision match during her sophomore season. Gould is a defending CIF Southern Section Masters Champion and among the favorites to win an individual CIF State Championship in two weeks.
Congratulations to Aleeah Gould on being chosen this week’s TCW wrestler of the week.
